Hi, Ruthie Weiglein (ruthieweiglein).
Aretha Braunt (ArethaBraunt) is now following your updates on Twitter.
Check out Aretha Braunt's profile here:
You may follow Aretha Braunt as well by clicking on the "follow" button.
I immediately think, "Geez, 1) why I am on this stupid site, 2) who is this freak who wants to "follow" me and 3) why does Twitter allow strangers to follow strangers without asking permission?"
Then I immediately click the link that takes me to the stranger's page to try find if they do perhaps know me. This time I found that, no, I have no clue who Aretha Braunt is. Typical. BUT! upon further inspection I discover that she is following 386 people- ALL NAMED RUTHIE. Yikes!
And then I see a link to this site: http://ruthietalk.ning.com/
What is this bizarro Ruthie culture I have been missing out on?
